You are right, I suppose I wasn't clear.. I meant Charleston vs. Wilmington, which are both eastern style. I guess Charleston does have some mustard style ,though. Although I am making inroads, btw, introducing mustard sauce here in SE NC.

I find the whole thing peculiar, that NC'ians say their BBQ is better than SC'ians. For the eastern style, the technique and the process is identical in Kingstree and Kinston. But we could get really far off topic talking about BBQ.

Technically, the Lowcountry region does stretch up towards the Wilmington area (and as far southward as north Florida), but you will find very, very, very few people who consider or call that the Lowcountry.
The way I understood it, the lowcountry is a part of south carolina, while the gullah stretched from Wilmington to Jax, FL.

Good! It's the best thing that could ever happen to them.

I think you're right about that, I just got it mixed up.

Thanks all.

Rubberfactory, can you elaborate a bit on your preference of NC as a state? I'm sure there will be many who prefer one to the other, but I'm always curious about the basis of such statements.

I'm equally curious why those of you voluntary (non-job related) transplants decided to settle in SC, especially those who weren't lured by the pull of familial ties. I'm sure others considering a move will be very appreciative as many forum readers want to learn from your experiences . Please share how well your experiences in SC have fared against your expectations. If you were choosing today, would you still move to your current location or pick a new spot? Many thanks!
